is the ongoing situation regarding the death of ambassador christopher stevens in libya. lots of vagueness about what really went on in the days leading up to this and indeed, afterwards. what is your assessment of where we are now? >> well, let me tell you what's not vague, and that is five days after, five days after what was very quickly determined by the intelligence committee as a terrorist attack, they trotted out our ambassador to the u.n. to every major news outlet saying that this was a spontaneous demonstration because of a hateful video. that's probably one of the worst things that i have ever observed in my life, and obviously, there were warnings and obviously anybody who believes that an attack with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades and a very sophisticated attack is the result of a video, i mean, it's just ridiculous. and finally, piers, it's not the video that's stoking these demonstrations. as you know, it's the radical islamists that are using the videos as a means of inflaming passion in the middle east and i'll be damned if i'm ready to abandon the freedom of speech becau

embassy in ben zazi and libya. the ambassador, christopher steven, was murdered. do you condemn the attack which caused his murder? >> fundamentally, first of all, any action that is provocative, off fenced the religious thoughts and feelings of any people, we condemn. likewise, we condemn any type of extremism. of course, what took place was ugly. offendering the holy prophet was quiting youly. it has nothing to do with freedom and freedom of speech this is the weaken and the abuse of freedom and in many places it is a crime. it shouldn't take place and i do hope that the day will come in which politicians will not seek to offend those whom others hold holy or sanctity. but we also believe that this must also be resolved in a humane atmosphere in a participatory environment and we do not like anyone losing their lives or being killed for any reason anywhere in the world. >> there are protesters all over the middle east threatening american embassies to kill them, to behead them, do you think it should stop? >> you see, i cannot determine what people or nations should do. but i do think th

, president obama knew ambassador chris stevens, knew him personally and was s appreciative of his work. as president of the united states, that diplomat core works for him. and he nominates those ambassadors. so what we need to do when the united states has been attacked, when the americans have been killed while serving our country, we don't need to have mitt romney and the republicans in congress taking their first instinct, being to take cheap political shots -- >> hold on a minute, because it was not about what mitt romney which was clumsy in its own way, but the suggestion that ambassador rice made statements that were blaming -- this video -- >> piers. >> it must have been known after four or five days that it was much more likely to have been a terrorist attack that it would have been planned. >> piers, i can't even believe you would suggest that ambassador rice would make misleading statements. at the beginning of this, it was very unclear as to what happened. the main thing was rather than make snap judgments that we take a step back, make sure a full investigation was done. >

point to the fact -- and they didn't used to be able to when david suter and john paul stevens were still on the court. they often voted with the appointees who were democratic appointees so that the 5-4 decisions always five republican appointees versus four democratic. now that they're off, it often does turn that way, but that is not because they are voting their politics. not because they're voting for the republicans or voting for the democrats. it's because they have been selected by the republicans or selected by the democrats precisely because of their judicial philosophy. so it should be no surprise that the five appointed by the republicans tend to have a certain judicial philosophy and the four appointed by the democrats tend to have a different one. i mean, that's what elections have been about for a long time. >> when you lose a -- or a case goes against what you would like it to go, what do you do? do you go have a few drinks? chill out? how do you deal with failure like that? because these are big deals. you're a supreme court judge. >> probably mutter something under

, there was no connection n my mind, between that phrase are any sense of cause although that cost stevens his death. but i think the questions are valid and they are going to continued to be asked and especially if you look at the timeline. how many people from the administration were unable to answer what caused this terrible calamity or blamed repetitively the action on a demonstration that got out of hand, the president himself at the united nations, two weeks later, mentioning it six times himself -- >> that's true and candy did point that out. the big problem for mitt romney is he got it wrong. in the heat of the debate moment, with everyone watching, what he should have said is, look, it took me two week to knowledge. it wasn't the video that sparked this. it was a preplanned al qaeda attack that sparked qul. he didn't say that >> i didn't attribute the appropriate causeality about that. mitt romney was correct about that. >> but he was clumsy. >> not in my mind. >> let's move onto binders for the women. i'm on mitt romney's side. i do a complete 360. let's watch what he actually said. >> we took a

stevens. he has down syndrome and is a global messenger for the special olympics. i'm pleased to have him live with me tonight along with the ceo of special olympics. welcome to you both. frank, let me start with you. i found your speech this morning that you wrote was extremely moving. you heard ann coulter there trying to insist that the word retard is not offensive. what was your reaction to that? >> well, the word retard is offensive and should not be -- should not be a symbol for someone who is dumb and shallow. they wanted to use me as a symbol, use it as a symbol for someone who fights adversity. >> and, tim, when you heard her getting very agitated about it, and insisted she would carry on using the word, no worse than moron, imbecile, correreton, whatever. i think retard, in particular, has been adopted by people who want to be offensive to people with disability, more than any of the other words, therefore, has a special significance that people are aware of. >> i think the question isn't which word is worse. i think the reason so many people like frank have tried to raise their
